Atwater Cabernet Franc 2008

Member Review by Philip James:

Very strong tannins dominate the soft fruit notes. Still too young, this wine needs more age. Tasted at the winery.

Vintage: 2005 07/24/2009

The hot and sultry growing season of 2005 created some of the most bold and explosive reds the Finger Lakes has ever produced. Considered to be our finest vintage to date, our Cabernet Franc flaunts rich, smoky tannins fused with notes of blackberry and plum. Savor this full bodied wine with braised short ribs, grilled steak and soft, aromatic cheeses.
